Instead of the "I am, I was, I will be a Rusyn" our little Lemko branch prefers: "We're still here, ya b*st****!"
There are many, many Lemko Rusyns still in the Philadelphia region. And we, the third and fourth generation Kornays, Karpiaks, Hudoczeks, Holowatczes and Bodnars, are still re-discovering our roots. It is a thrilling and heartbreaking journey. (our village cluster is now in SE Poland: Czarnawoda, Bialawoda, Jaworky and Szchlatohowa)
Thank you so much for the very informative and detailed article.
"Who argues at a folk festival?" HA! we are the most stubborn, grudge holding group I have ever met. and that's why we ARE still here!!!!!!!!!!
